In November, I’ll be starting to work from my agency’s office one day per week. When I took the redundancy from my old job, the agency director and I agreed that over time I’d start spending one then two days in her office, but after that first conversation I just put my head down and hoped she’d forget.
But now her other account manager is about to leave and she’s pregnant with twins due around Christmas (surprise pregnancy – they’ll be babies four and five!) so she really does need me in the office at the end of the year.
And one day a week of childcare for Hugo is not that big a deal, I know, especially since he’ll be 18 months old by then.
But I just keep putting off that call to the daycare provider. Every day I say I will call her, but I never do. Maybe tomorrow.
